SiP sources a diverse range of speakers, offering impartial advice on the entire speaker spectrum. We are always up-to-date with newly available and undiscovered talent, as well as world-leading experts. Our extensive experience within financial services means we know who goes down well for different segments of the industry, to ensure that similar audiences are not presented with the same content.

As part of MiP, a leading London-based financial marketing company, we uniquely combine specialist knowledge with a wealth of creative conference and marketing expertise.

We help build agendas from the bottom up, advising on themes and evolving formats for both new and established conferences and other events.


Sanlam - Invested in the future series
Sanlam Invested in the Future Series

We created a series of future-focused virtual events with some of the country’s leading thinkers, experts and social commentators, exploring a range of topical issues in live Q&A sessions. Guest speakers included Andrew Carter, CEO of the Centre for Cities, leading economist and author Stephen King, and Jonathan Shaw, the MOD’s former and first head of cyber defence. All events were filmed in a studio and streamed live to a virtual audience, with Samantha Simmonds anchoring each event.

GAM Investment Conference
GAM Investment Conference

Working within an overarching narrative of “beyond the obvious”, we sourced two external speakers to discuss future trends in technology and macroeconomics. Kickstarting proceedings was Stephane Garelli, Professor Emeritus at the University of Lausanne, and Thomas Frey, Google’s top-rated futurist, joined us that afternoon.

The Global Equity Forum
Global Equity Forum

The Global Equity Forum brought together four respected global equity managers, to share their unique perspectives on this diverse sector. The event was hosted by broadcaster and journalist Natasha Kaplinsky, who expertly navigated discussion, facilitated Q&A, and maintained positive energy throughout.
